Integral political philosopher Steve McIntosh will discuss his recent book: Developmental Politics—How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself.
Developmental Politics comes from the work of the Institute for Cultural Evolution think tank, which is now pursuing an organization-wide initiative entitled “The Post-Progressive Project.” This initiative advances an inclusive new political perspective founded on “cultural intelligence,” which can help reconcile America’s stark political divide and bring peace to the culture war.
The Post-Progressive Project seeks to build a constituency among leaders and members of the American public who are concerned about progressivism’s emerging pathologies. Post-progressivism, however, is not anti-progressive. Rather, it seeks to demonstrate what comes after progressivism, both culturally and politically.
“Cultural intelligence” is the ability to recognize the mutual interdependence of America’s three major worldviews: traditionalism, modernism, and progressivism. This comprehensive overview perspective sees how the positive values and enduring accomplishments of all three of these distinct value frames form a kind of symbiotic cultural ecosystem wherein each worldview has an ongoing role to play. Cultural intelligence provides the ability to integrate and harmonize these three distinct sets of values.
